Two Sticky Seniors

Brad M. Griffin | Dec 15, 2010

Yesterday our friend (and Fuller grad) Lars Rood shared with us a video his church made recently to share with their congregation. It features two girls, both seniors in high school, who share why they are investing in freshman girls this year.

Both of them note that it was during their own freshman year that some seniors invested in them, and that made all the difference for their faith. In turn they’re passing that impact on to others. Pretty cool. One of the things we learned in our Sticky Faith research is that students who invest in younger students or children’s ministries tend to have stickier faith across the transition from high school to college. So stories like this get us excited!

Watch their story below.
